As an interior designer and author, I've learned that creating a calm and serene environment is essential for managing stress and finding balance in everyday life. In this blog post, I'll share some of my top recommendations from Patina Home & Garden that can help you overcome stress and create a serene oasis in your home and garden.
SOFT AND NEUTRAL HOME DECOR
I believe that our surroundings can greatly impact our mood and well-being. That's why I make it a priority to create a calm environment in my home and workspace. I surround myself with soft, neutral colors, natural materials, and meaningful objects that bring me joy. I also make sure to keep my space tidy and clutter-free, as a cluttered environment can add to feelings of stress and overwhelm.
What we wear can also impact our mood and well-being. Patina Home & Garden offers a selection of mindful apparel that combines comfort and style. Think loose-fitting linen dresses, flowy tunics, and soft loungewear made from sustainable materials. These pieces not only look good, but they also feel good on your skin and allow for ease of movement, helping you stay comfortable and relaxed throughout the day.
GARDEN ESSENTIALS FOR OUTDOOR RETREATS
Spending time in nature is a proven way to reduce stress and increase well-being. I make sure to set aside time for activities that nourish my soul, such as gardening, tending to our farm animals, or strolling through the forests of Patina Meadow in search of mushrooms.
We’ve been building up our inventory of garden essentials that can help you create an outdoor retreat in your own backyard. From durable garden tools handmade with steel, wood, and copper to organic seeds and seedlings, you can feel empowered to design an oasis in your yard that is as peaceful as it is natural and non-toxic.
TIMELESS AND MEANINGFUL OBJECTS
Incorporating meaningful objects such as vintage-inspired clocks, meaningful wall art, and unique decor pieces into your home can bring joy and serenity to your space. I am passionate about sourcing handmade goods with natural materials that can infuse your home with personal touches. I believe these objects can remind you to stay present, practice mindfulness, and cultivate gratitude in your daily life.
SELF-CARE PRODUCTS FOR NOURISHING YOUR MIND AND BODY
Self-care is an important aspect of managing stress and finding balance. I like to use natural products with essential oils in my skincare routine to nourish my body and mind. Throughout the years, I have found exceptional skincare companies and even formulated my own facial mist and oil with one.
Creating a serene environment is essential for overcoming stress and finding balance in everyday life. The Patina Home & Garden website offers a variety of home decor, apparel, and garden essentials that can help you create calm spaces in your home and garden. Remember, investing in your home and garden can be an investment in your mental and emotional well-being too.
